Tapbots Releases 'Tweetbot' Twitter App for iPhone

Tapbots, developer of several Mac and iOS apps including Calcbot, Convertbot and others, has released Tweetbot, a new Twitter client for the iPhone. Tweetbot debuted in the App Store yesterday and features customizable navigation and gestures, the ability to view lists as separate timelines as well as features also found in other iOS Twitter clients like URL shortening support, translations, and push notifications via Boxcar.

Tapbots has created a demo video highlighting Tweetbot's features:


Tapbots had revealed over a year ago that a Twitter client for the iPhone was in the works and last month indicated that it was "really close" to a release just a few days before Twitter declared that third-party developers should stop creating clients for the popular social networking service based on the company's new focus on a "consistent user experience" across platforms.

Tweetbot is currently on sale for a special introductory price of $1.99 and requires iOS 4.1 or higher.
